    Abstract

    Modern organisation is now a global phenomenon of extraordinary reach, used in transnational corporations and in local professional practices (Drori, Meyer, & Hwang, 2006a). This chapter explores how the modern organisational environment significantly challenges, blurs and destabilises understanding of the ways in which managers and professional practitioners exercise authority and discretion.
